Berry Bros. & Rudd Meredith, 5-year-old, Full Rich Madeira

Sold Out

Berry Bros. & Rudd’s “Ship Series” of Madeiras reflects the practice, common until the mid-19th century, of naming wines after the ships that carried them. The Meredith, which visited the island in the late eighteenth century, shipped a consignment which was prized in its day. This beautifully sweet Madeira boasts a lovely golden colour with aromas of toffee and nuts, then a richly luscious palate with nuances of chocolate, molasses, wood smoke and vanillin all thrown into glorious relief by a rapier-like acidity.
